Uber Shanghai Has Officially Launched! Uber 正式进驻中国上海！
Uber Shanghai has been testing operations and building a stronger understanding of how to best serve this incredible city since August. The response has been so amazing, we decided to make our love affair with Shanghai official. On Thursday, we officially launched in China’s financial and cultural epicenter.
We celebrated the Uber Shanghai launch in a way that we know the best — by getting together with our beloved supporters and friends at one of the city’s most exclusive venues, KEE Club. Uber wouldn’t be the same without each and every one of them over the past few months. Upon this celebration, we are proud to announce some exciting news including our Chinese name – 优步 (meaning “step forward”) – and newly integrated Alipay on the iOS app. Through these efforts we hope to show Shanghai our commitment to and love for this city — a city that we believe will soon be one of Uber’s flagship cities worldwide.
If you haven’t taken advantage of the Uber experience, now is the time. If you’re a new user, enter the promo code “ubershlaunch” and enjoy up to ¥100 off your first ride in Shanghai.
You can also follow us on Weibo, Instagram and WeChat at @Uber_Shanghai and tell us about your ride!
Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
